ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO KNITWEAR

There are lots of reasons to be excited about 2019. From psychedelic fashion trends and inspiring exhibitions to laugh-out-loud Netflix shows, this year is gonna be one to remember, trust. So, here are seven stylish moments to look forward to over the next 12 months.
The trend – tie-dye
This groovy 60s trend is well and truly back for SS19. The catwalks were fit to burst with spinning psychedelic prints, as designers like Stella McCartney, Prada and R13 served all the nostalgic feels. But it’s not all bohemian shapes and hippy vibes (although there will be plenty of maxi dresses and T-shirts for your vacay/festival wardrobe). Expect to see tie-dye in unexpected places, like on a tailored blazer or a slick boilersuit.
The key piece – head first
We’ll all be dressing from the head down this year if the catwalks are anything to go by. Black fascinators at CELINE, straw hats at CHANEL, bucket styles at Etro, beekeeper versions at ERDEM, embellished headbands at Miu Miu… Head space was a big focus throughout the collections and will no doubt be top of the 2019 style agenda.
The exhibition – Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams
If you didn’t make it to Paris last year for Musée des Arts Décoratifs’ Dior exhibit, there’s good news: London’s V&A museum is hosting its own this year. Chronicling Dior’s 72-year history, the show (opening 2 February) will include 200 couture creations – so if you’re searching for some old-school glamour inspo this year, look no further.
The movie – Rocketman
As Bohemian Rhapsody enjoys awards-season success, the world eagerly awaits the next biopic blockbuster: Rocketman. Based on the life of Elton John, the movie is being developed by the man himself and stars Kingsman actor Taron Egerton. As it’s not out until the summer, we don’t know much more about it yet – but from the trailer, it looks like it will be full of iconic tunes and epic costumes.
The show – Sex Education
Hailed as the new Inbetweeners, Netflix’s new comedy Sex Education is out this month. Following in the footsteps of his sex therapist mother, Otis Milburn opens an underground sex therapy clinic at his school with his friend Maeve (who he’s in love with, naturally). The result is a hilarious, touching and seriously stylish affair that will have you wanting to wear Dr. Martens with fishnets and dye your hair pink, stat.
Industry trend – animal-friendly clothes
Fur is definitely a no for 2019. At the end of last year, Gucci announced it will no longer use it in its collections and opt for faux-fur instead – joining the likes of Versace, Tommy Hilfiger and Stella McCartney. In addition, more and more retailers are avoiding mohair, silk, cashmere and feathers in their designs, ASOS included. Cruelty-free fashion, what’s not to love?
The artist – Kelsey Lu
Classically trained cellist and vocalist Kelsey Lu has worked with the likes of Sampha, Florence & The Machine and Solange, but 2019 is her time to shine with the release of her album, Blood. And it’s not only her music we’re looking forward to – the North Carolina native is also one to watch in the fashion stakes thanks to her fearless, experimental style.

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO KNITWEAR

From January to March, it’s non-stop knitwear around the ASOS office. And we never tire of it – each ASOSer rocks the winter fave in their own unique way. From minimalist vibes to all-out print fests, here’s a taster of how we’re wearing woollens now.
This cute cropped cardi wouldn’t look out of place in our fave chick flicks – think Legally Blonde and Mean Girls. Russian Editorial Assistant Anya lets the pink shade take centre stage, pairing it with low-key black jeans, a classic white tee and cowboy boots. We wanna party with this cardi.
Swedish Editor Nelly puts a cool spin on Scandi minimalism in this getup. We love how she funks up the ‘fit London style with chunky sneakers and gold jewellery. The final takeaway? A scarf around the neck is the ultimate outfit finisher. Divine.
Can fashion make you happy? If this knit is anything to go by, then yes. Feeling down in a colourful creation like this would be basically impossible. We firmly believe that there is no such thing as too much print – and Merchandising Administrator Elena clearly agrees, mixing in another pattern via a polka-dot mini skirt.
Fluffy cardigans are the equivalent to a warm hug or a cup of tea on those freezing winter days. And they don’t have to be all sweet and girly – here Freelance Fashion Assistant Florence shows how you can work them into a grungier getup. Just add Converse and a pair of boyfriend jeans. Magic.
To spread the love in 2019, all you need is this monochrome knit. Make like Merchandising Assistant Rosie and wear it with cropped pants, socks and Vans. The result? A look that’s as comfy as it is cool – AKA January’s fashion holy grail. We’re loving it.

The Velvet Boots
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not over the heartache of packing away our sequin dresses and Christmas jumpers yet (although packing away the wrapping paper and sellotape until next year is a weight off the shoulders, amirite?) But if 2019 is all about jaw to the floor velvet boots, then we’ll get over it!
The Velvet Skirt
You didn’t think you could go through 2019 without a velvet skirt, did you? Oh hun, of course not! Like we said, velvet has made a HUGE return and it’s going to be everywhere in every colour. Can I get a hallelujah?!

At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice.

We’ve rounded up this edit on what’s knit this season with the key layers you need to own RN. Can we get an amen?
Slouchy knit
For the cooler climes, say holla to slouchy knits, set to be big this season. Keep it chic in off the shoulder <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> or look to oversized fits to amp up the comfort factor.

Cropped Knit
Not quite ready to let go of your skin-showing summer outfits? Compromise is key here babes, nobody wants you catching hypothermia. Why not opt for the perfect middle ground: A cropped jumper.

ASOS:STYLE LESSONS FROM CHRISTMAS FILMS

We all know that our fave festive flicks can help soothe any post-party feels, but have you ever noticed the <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> inspiration they serve up? From cosy knitwear to party
<span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>, these iconic films offer a lot of sartorial suggestions on top of their tear-jerking storylines and heart-warming moments. Here are five key looks we love and how you can wear them IRL.
The Holiday
From sunny LA to snowy Surrey, The Holiday’s Amanda always looks on-point, even while she’s having a midlife crisis after her breakup (how does she look that good in sweatpants?). You may not be planning to swap lives with a stranger any time soon, but you can defo copy elements of her sophisticated style. Take her shearling-trimmed coat. We can’t guarantee you’ll nab a dashing Jude Law lookalike in it, but a similar faux-shearling number is an investment piece that’s guaranteed to keep you warm in style.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Now, when it comes to naming your favourite time of year, for many people it’s a toss-up between Halloween and <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span>. Director Tim Burton was clearly caught in a similar conundrum when he decided to release the merry-yet-macabre animated flick The Nightmare Before Christmas. The film tells the tale of Jack Skellington and humanoid ragdoll, Sally. Everything about Sally has been sewn together, including her patchwork dress (which eerily matches the stitching around her eyes). For a spookily good look, go for a similar number like this street-styler. Rock it at a party and you’ll have fellow guests shouting, ‘What’s this? What’s this?!’ with jealousy and excitement.
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
After a day or two of full-on family time over Christmas, you may have wished you too were lost in New York like Kevin in Home Alone. Aside from being jealous of his fun-filled time in the Big Apple (until he runs into the bad guys, of course), there’s also plenty to be envious of in his winter lineup – like his adorable bobble hat. Trust us when we say a beanie will greatly improve your cold-weather life. And it looks just as good on grown-ups, as this street-styler proves. Wear it on the weekend with jeans and a bomber jacket, ya filthy animals.
Love Actually
Hands up if Love Actually makes you cry every time? The Richard Curtis classic gives us all the Christmas feels – and plenty of seriously stylish moments. Keira Knightley’s character, in particular, sleighs throughout the movie. When she opens the door to her husband’s close (and may we add terrible) friend, who proceeds to tell her he loves her, she gives us a valuable fashion lesson: knits need not be frumpy. Find one that falls off the shoulder and, hey presto, your off-duty weekend look is dialled up a notch. Take your cue from this street-styler and wear it with denim and black accessories. To us, this is perfect.
It’s a Wonderful Life
The classic to beat all classics, it’s impossible to avoid It’s a Wonderful Life at Christmas. George Bailey and his life story may be the focus of the film, but Mary (played by Donna Reed) and her amazing costumes are also big stars of the film. The tiered dress she wears in the dance scene is particularly major and it moves so beautifully as she shimmies around with George. A similar ruffly style will look amazing as you bust a move over party season. Plus, as you can see from this street-style look, it works for daytime with a sweater and trainers. It sure is a wonderful look.

ZARA:The Super-Minimal 2-Piece Formula That’s All Over Pinterest

Often the most uncomplicated ensembles pack the chicest punch. The latest of these simple combos is now is becoming every bit as ubiquitous. Enter: super-relaxed tailoring, the outfit trend we can barely go an Instagram or Pinterest scroll without spying on our favorite influencers. As much suited to a stroll through a Moroccan market as to the lunch spots of downtown Manhattan, this combination of an oversize shirt mixed with loose-fitting tailored trousers screams easy-breezy.
There’s only one rule to the trend: Keep your separates relaxed and minimal. Ensure your shirt is a few sizes too big, and pair with paper-bag, high-waisted <span class=”woR”>trousers</span><span class=”woD”>Trousers (pants in North America and Australia) are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes, skirts, and dresses). In the UK the word “pants” generally means underwear and not trousers.[1] Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called “long trousers” in certain contexts such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called “short trousers”, especially in the UK.</span>
(like the above look from Na Nin Vintage), palazzo styles, or an oversize subtle flare (blogger Ada Oguntodu expertly demonstrates this option below). As for your palette, neutral works best, but no one’s getting a slap on the wrist if a dash of color is what you so desire. Below, we’ve rounded up prime inspiration for the best trouser-and-shirt combinations in town.
WHITE AND TAN WORK BEAUTIFULLY TOGETHER
Style Notes: Make like

YOU CAN LAYER UP FOR WINTER
Style Notes: Layer over a cream-colored turtleneck to make your ensemble cold weather–appropriate. Less of the chill, all of the chic.
SIMPLY SWAP SUMMER NEUTRALS FOR WINTER ONES
Style Notes: Who said you can’t move this outfit idea into winter? Just swap creams and whites for black. Simple.
BUT ALL-WHITE WORKS EVERY TIME
Style Notes: All white? It always looks expensive. Separate those pure pieces with a vintage-style belt for the perfect finishing touch.
ADD INTEREST WITH UNIQUE ACCESSORIES
Style Notes: Yes, this look is all about relaxed shapes, but that’s not to say you can’t be experimental with your accessories. Those cute details can make this idea unique.
SUBTLE, CLASSIC PATTERNS ARE IN
Style Notes: Stop your oversize look from stepping into swamping territory by way of a statement belt.
UNTUCKED CAN WORK AS WELL AS TUCKED-IN
